Toronto-based singer/emcee/songwriter ‘Ice Tha One’ goes all in. With roots based in Hip-Hop, R&B and Soul, Ice delivers raw lyricism with a smooth melody. She’s all sass, nerve and blends an old school vibe with a modern flex.
Her latest EP ‘In the Paint’ is a collaboration with renowned producer/emcee Junia-T. The EP also includes Fresh Kils, engineer/mpc wiz, both long time friends so naturally she was elated to finally work on a project alongside her brothers. For Ice, music has always been an important outlet for self-expression, a means to process emotions and all the ups and downs we have to experience.
Ice represents the east side of her city to the fullest which is why her alias till this day is still the Est-Sde Gnrl, (pronounced-east side general). In recent years, Ice has branched out across continents in broadening her sound while reaching various audiences across the UK, Australia and Europe. Her upcoming record is a dynamic testament to resilience. With powerful and provocative tracks like ”How Can I Tell You" and “Proposition,” Ice reveals her dynamic nature and in turn inspires listeners to push boundaries, love, explore and be true to themselves.
Fueled with a passion to reach others through her voice, Ice’s love for music drove her to carve out a tone and style all her own. “For me, it’s really about having fun with it, creating without holding back and just leaving it all out on the floor,” says Ice. “I’m always balancing different sides of my personality through my music. It’s an opportunity to let go and be yourself.”
